Everyone that pays for a regular phone has to pay for the free Obama phone. This thread is about phones.
Presently, Drudge links to an article at the Washington Examiner explaining where this miraculous "Obama Phone" originated: with an FCC program called Lifeline in 1984 during the Reagan administration that, according to the agency's website, "provides discounts on monthly service and initial telephone installation or activation fees for primary residences to income-eligible consumers." The rationale, according to the agency, was that "FCC and Congress recognize that telephone service provides a vital link to emergency services, government services and surrounding communities."

That was about phones, right?
